S is a killer letter. Too many apologies to list, but if I were forced to combine the Spacemen 3 family into one entry, Sigur Rós and Sleep would be up next.

Sufjan Stevens
Slint
Solange
Shellac
Sloy

Scott Walker
Steely Dan
The Smiths
Sparks
Stevie Wonder

Also:
Smog, Sisters of Mercy, Simple Minds, Sharon Van Etten, Shearwater, Soft Cell, Solange, Sleater-Kinney, Sparklehorse, Sigur Ros, Sleaford Mods.

I agonised about The Smiths because of the recent unpleasantness, but I can’t hide from the fact that they were my favourite band for more years than any other band.

Strong letter.
